Up until this point in the project, all of our models have been made from either insulation foam or other common items like clay or foam. For our final model, we decided to use high density foam for our material. The shape was created through rigorous carving and sanding. Once the shape was finished, I sprayed the tips with a Plasti-Dip, which is a spray on rubber coating. After applying four coats, the tongs were ready to be connected. I used a clip from the back of a measuring tape as the hinge, and used two screws to connect the pieces together.
